Flowhood/Glovebox? would this work....
    #1955711 - 09/26/03 10:52 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Ok what if you had a sterlite style glovebox...then got the biggest fish pump you can find, put it into a sealed tupperware container with hepa filters siliconed/taped/gluegun/whatever of holes in the sides of the tupperware, then have the output hose running into a glovebox without the gloves taped onto the arm holes...would this create enough positive air pressure to pump clean air into the box and not allow contaminated air in from the arm holes? just a thought.

No man the point of the glovebox is so air cannot enter but air in the box exits. You dont want humid air in the box because it could carry contam. I put one of those little fans that are on computer modems on my box blowing out. I also dont use gloves. It is too difficult to grasp and move things in the box while looking through the lid. I just wash my hands well.

I like the pump idea but I'd use it a little different. When I bomb the box with lysol I can use the pump to push out the lysol after a half hour or so and have the pleasure of not blowing up when flame sterlizing.

i don't know if a fish pump would provide enough airflow. i'd recommend using a small hepa air purifier instead. it shouldn't cost more than $40 US, and will push a hell of a lot more air than an aquarium pump.

also, i'd recommend using your sterilite upside down (assuming it's clear and the lid isn't). this way you can see inside without making any sort of window.

good luck!

i would first wash hands and arms thouroughly. then put on some disposable medical gloves (go for purple nitrile, or latex with aloe if you can find'em), and rub hands and arms down with waterless sanitizer. also, fill a spray bottle with 91% isopropyl alcohol and drench the inside of the box and it's contents before getting to work. it will evaporate quickly due to the air movement.
